Simple and Elegant Curb Appeal

Like many landscape renovations, GreenHeart Garden Designs was called in to improve the entry after the homeowners had Winn Design Build update the house with new windows and dormers. Driveway, walkway, and retaining wall were failing and the existing plantings were overgrown and uninspired. Great American Landscapes constructed a lovely new stone wall in neutral tones of grey and buff, and installed a more gracious walk, steps and easy-care plantings. We consolidated two separate steps into a simpler series of two steps, the risers of which became the termination point of the wall. Creative Concrete stamped and colored a driveway to complement the colors of house and the new stone wall. We kept the existing mature Crepe Myrtle and transplanted an existing Okame Cherry for respective summer and early spring flowering interest. Long-blooming drift roses produce soft, fragrant flowers all summer long and a dark evergreen fringe frames the front windows. Abelia will bloom in late summer along with Liriope.
